Default Garmin 340C Fishfinder Opinions

As an owner of the Garmin 340C, I'd be interested in others opinion of this unit. Did it meet your expectations?
I have mixed emotions. When the unit is on full auto mode, I will,from time to time, loose bottom in shallow water, and need to fiddle with sensitivity if using fish icons in order to cut down on fish icons filling the screen.
"Arches" appear more like blobs...
However, color mix, screen clarity/brightness, reliability are fine. Am I expecting too much from a $300 unit?

Last spring I installed a 320C.This year I bought a new boat and was going to buy a 340C because I loved the 320 but when I went to the boat shows the display didn't look the same as the 320.I wound up going with a Furuno 620,the display blew the 340 away.
